health care harry. i think there is a mood in america of anger. with so many people unemployed and so much bickering in washington people are disgusted with the partisanship and with the fear of losing their health care, it all boils over. but i think one thing that has to be borne in mind, and you've got the commotion in the background, is that these people have a right to be organized. i'm not going to complain about the fact that they are organized. they have a right to do that and they have a right to speak. but i think we ought to understand that they're not necessarily representative of america. >> well, i guess that's the question. do you think they're a vocal minority? >> well, i sure think they're vocal, harry. and i think that they are not representative. i wouldn't even classify them as as a minority. i would classify -- when you say a minority you're talking about minority and majority as if there is some sort of parity. i think these people who have a right to organize and talk and be in the meeting, not to disrupt, their freedom of speech ends when the

begin it to explain that, how do you begin to deal with that? >> well, fortunately for america and unfortunately for the people who need treatment in this case, it's really sort of unprecedent unprecedented. so in order to give and you good victim specific prognosis and treatment plan, i'd have to see the victims and examen them and assess them, but let me tell you where to start. you start with let'sing them know that they're safe. it's really too soon for them to have fully wrapped their minds even around that yet. and then that they're loved unconditionally and that they tonight have to feel guilty for anything that they did or didn't do while this was going on. it's too early i think for people in the media to be diagnosing the stockholm syndrome. that's possibly that she's developed an an finity for them and that the kids have, too, but what's more likely is that they just resign themselves to the fact that they were never going to get out of this thing and just tried to make the best of it, which is a different thing from liking the cap tore. >> brian russell, go apprecia

of the day, it's not just the democrats' problem. it's america's problem. it's a problem that's been ignored and was ignored by the bush administration for eight years. at the end of the day, this is something the democrats and the obama administration have to address. this is something the american people want. i think what you'll see the obama administration do going into the fall is make a very strong argument why we need this health care reform. in terms of the public option, i think it will be in there in some form. >> i would like a yes or no from each of you. it's so complicated. is health care reform going to happen, dan? >> some element but not what they wanted. >> chris? >> yes. i think it's going to happen and be more significant than people realize. >> thank you both. chris kofinis and dan bartlett. >>> sure has taken a long time. >> a lot happening this morning. for more news, weheck in with russ mitchell. >> good morning. new violence this morning in afghanistan's capital on the eve of the presidential election. men with guns and grenades took over a bank until police rushed th

support? >> i think bill clinton is still the smartest political mind in america. he said it at a net roots convention in pittsburgh. as soon as president obama signs the bill, his ratings will go up again. and i think that's true. it's a messy process. it's a politics process. the senate is not even back in session for the next three weeks. my guess is the republicans aren't going to vote for this bill no matter what. there's no point in making a lot of concessions to people who aren't going to vote for the bill under any circumstances anyway. >> can it pass with this public omgs now that the president has essentially admitted he's willing to compromise on it? >> i don't think it can pass without the public option. there are too many people who understand, including the president himself, the public option is absolutely linked to reform. if you don't have the republicans playing seriously in this bill, you only have the democrats, and the democrats want a public option. the public option is just that. you get to choose. if you as an individual don't want public insurance, you shouldn

republic" and author of "sick: the untold story of america's health care crisis and the people who pay the price". jonathan, good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm going to get right to some of these questions, some of these hot-button issues that get repeated and repeated and repeated day after day, especially in these meetings. we just heard the mantei we don't need obama and his crew to tell us how to die. is this health care reform plan going to create death panels telling people how to die, true or false? >> absolutely false. i think this is probably the most outrageous claim we've heard. there is a provision in the bill that they're moving through that if you want to write a living will, you want to talk to your doctor about it, you want to do it the right way, make sure you're asking for what you want, then medicare will actually pay your doctor to sit down with you and do it so, you can have the time and the conversation. that's all. voluntary conversation about living will. that's it. no death panels, no euthanasia, nothing like that. >> all right. the administration says if yo

turning power over to the government when there clearly are people in america who believe in establishing euthanasia. >> reporter: newt gingrich added his voice to the chorus of health reform critics who suggest the democratic plan would encourage some seriously ill seniors to end their lives. the president called that claim an outlandish rumor. >> that's simply not true. >> reporter: the house bill, he says, would simply provide for counseling on end of life issues, like whether to have a living will. >> this is a very emotional issue that caught on big when no one was listening. the administration now has to explain. >> reporter: democrats are also now busy refuting republican claims that the forum would insert government into the doctor-patient relationship. >> i don't want somebody in between the doctor and the patient. >> reporter: health reform critics continue to express their anger at town hall meetings, this one by senator tom harkin. >> it is not good for us! >> reporter: and ads for and against the president's healthcare plan are filling the airways. today aarp will join in wit
